Do you ever get a really good idea and you need to make it a reality at that very moment?
Because that is basically my life at all points in time when it comes to food and music.
It’s almost addicting, but my blog makes it all seem okay. So thanks you guys.
Anyways, my whole point is that that is how these little beauties came to be. First, I made a French onion soup version my mom and I created over the phone (coming soon!) and then I somehow came up with these while craving Philly Cheesesteaks one day.
I’m quite a complex character, aren’t you impressed?
Plus, aren’t they soooo cute? I can’t get over how much I love them.
I just started with some good quality roast beef from the deli. I’m serious about the good quality thing. Don’t go cheap here, you really don’t need that much anyways.
Also, look for phyllo cups or you may have to make your own which takes forever. Really strive to find the premade cups and your life will be a breeze.
Other than that, it only takes about 5 minutes to throw together, and they freeze. Easy appetizer much?
How great would these be for Superbowl? I know what I’m making next year!
2 packages phyllo cups (15 per package)
1/2 lb. good quality deli roast beef, roughly chopped
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
1/4 onion, diced (or 2 Tbs. dried onion flakes, which is what I used)
2 cloves garlic, chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 c. provolone, shredded + 30 small slices of provolone
Preheat oven to 350* F. Place phyllo cups on a baking sheet lined with foil. Set aside.
Heat olive oil in a saute pan over medium high heat. Add bell pepper and onion. Saute until soft. Add garlic and saute until fragrant. Add roast beef , salt, pepper, and cheese, and heat until cheese is melted.
Spoon mixture into the phyllo cups. Top with provolone squares.
Bake for about 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and slightly bubbly.
These make me happy. I even ate them for dinner. I had no shame.
Just put them on a cute plate, and you’re good to go. Instant people pleaser.
*For a vegetarian alternative, use mushrooms instead of roast beef.
